On Saturday, April 8, at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai, the 12th match of the Indian Premier League 2023 will pit Mumbai Indians (MI) against Chennai Super Kings (CSK). In their opening contest, Mumbai was humiliated by the Royal Challengers Bangalore.
El Clasico, which is about the storied rivalry between Real Madrid and Barcelona, is what Kieron Pollard compared MI vs CSK to. In the league, an encounter between the Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings has become a major event since years now.
Although it is one of the most important games of an IPL season, MI will handle it like just another match, according to Pollard.
It’s just another game. Obviously, it’s a big game, we call it El Clasico of the IPL, Mumbai vs Chennai, and a lot of expectations are thrust upon this match in terms of who’s going to come out on top,” the MI batting coach said
